Smithfields Market

Charterhouse Street, EC1A 9PQ

Once occupied in the 10th century by a livestock market, this site has been selling meat for over 800 years.
Market goers must be early risers for this specialist market as it opens at 4am. This is so restaurateurs and hoteliers are able to buy fresh meat to cook on the same day. However, the public are more than welcome. The perfect place to find a mid-week family joint or meat for a special gourmet meal.

Opening hours: Monday- Friday
                             4am- Midday

Nearest Tube: Farringdon/ Barbican
